Five stars for sauna land

Five stars for sauna land

Matthias einwag the obermain spa has reason to celebrate. For the fourth time in a row, sauna-land has been awarded the "premium" quality seal by the german sauna association awarded with five stars.

With this certification, the german sauna association would like to offer its guests more security and a better orientation on the market. Over 150 farms are currently awarded one of the three quality seals of the association. The quality system is comparable to the well-known stars in hotels. It consists of three categories: classic, selection and premium. "The categories should not be seen hierarchically. Rather, they build on each other and are each linked to a precisely defined offer.

Wellness services – such as different types of massage and/or beauty care as well as exercise classes – are also part of the premium offer. The infusions are to be presented health-oriented and with a good wagging technique. In addition, hygiene is a quality criterion. The water quality of the bathing and diving pools must be examined regularly. All award-winning sauna facilities must also have employed trained specialist staff.

Migrants in tijuana: waiting in the worst of conditions

Migrants in tijuana: waiting in the worst of conditions

Food is scarce, sanitary facilities are too few, and the only thing left to do is wait: after about two weeks in an emergency shelter at the U.S. Border, dozens of migrants from central america have given up and voluntarily started the return trip from mexico to their homelands.

A group of 105 people have been flown out on a federal police plane, the mexican migration service said on twitter. The authorities did not explain to which countries the migrants were taken. The bulk of the people currently in a so-called migrant caravan in the border city of tijuana are from honduras.

But others do not want to give up. "Return, i will not return," karla lorena sierra told the german press agency. "I’m going to apply for asylum, I’m just sorting out my papers," says the honduran. Many of the returnees had no family members in the u.S. To help them with the application, explains the woman, who lives with her husband and three children in the migrant hostel in the "benito juarez" sports complex.
